We are all so confused. Hello, I have a question regarding a 14yr old boy having an unexplained night time seizure.

We found no increased risk of idiopathic incident seizures associated with exposure to tramadol alone. Among the 10,916 subjects, we identified 17 cases of idiopathic seizures, 11 of which were definite and 6 possible. We conducted a study of the risk of idiopathic incident seizures among users of tramadol derived from data present in the General Practice Research Database based in the United Kingdom for. Eight patients were exposed to opiates, five to both tramadol and opiates, three to other analgesics, and one to no analgesics. Thus seizures seem rarely attributable to the agent. We used a nested case-control study design, comparing risks of idiopathic incident seizures during exposed and unexposed times among patients who had ever taken tramadol using a 90-day follow-up. None of the patients was exposed to tramadol alone in the prior 90 days.
